Odds & Ends

Tartt is expected to play Sat, and Doe may "compete" for the chance to get some play.

I see replay in baseball getting expanded, at least for postseason, beyond its current function... sooner rather than later.

I've been saying there is no obvious advantage for either team in this year's florida v georgia game, but I think Florida, with last week off before Kentucky, may be a little better rested, and may be a little more confident, and hopefully capable, on defense at this point. I do think Georgia has been better tested, playing at LSU, and playing Alabama, and played a generally more difficult schedule and has been away from home in many of those games. Our offenses look equal at this point, while we have an edge on special teams. We are probably better off in this game because of our loss to Ole Miss-- I'm sure they would say the same about their game with 'Bama.

This is from Meyer's biography, released over the summer, regarding the post-TD dance by Ga last year:

"That wasn't right," Meyer said in "Urban's Way," which was written with sportswriter Buddy Martin. "It was a bad deal. It will forever be in the mind of Urban Meyer and in the mind of our football team. We'll handle it and it's going to be a big deal."

The full column with the previous bit is here, and this is the book by said columnist.

Here's another juicy detail from the column, with a little qualifying needle tacked on by Schlabach:

And don't be surprised if the Bulldogs have something else up their sleeves for the Gators.

"The seniors came up with something new -- something we've never done before," Gamble said, while declining to provide specifics to reporters.

Actually beating the Gators two years in a row -- a feat the Bulldogs haven't accomplished since 1988-89 -- would certainly seem unique.
